A festival dedicated to fashion? And for a good cause?
Event: #FwdYourFashion Festival
Where: 716 Monroe St. NE, Washington, DC 20017
When: Saturday, April 26th
In celebration of their two week challenge to collect the largest donated clothing ever recorded with the help from their 170 communities (comprised of employees, residents, and friends), Bozzuto Group, along with Goodwill of Greater Washington and Monroe Street Market, are throwing a grand festival dedicated to fashion, shopping, and fun giveaways. It's called #FwdYourFashion and it's in honor of Earth Month. The proceeds from this event will go towards Goodwill's job training and employment services for local area people with disabilities and disadvantages.
I decided to check out the Goodwill retail store located in NE DC. I didn't really have a specific theme in mind regarding the 3 looks. I just went from rack to rack picking up any clothing item that drew my attention. From there, I went to work trying to create looks from the items I've selected. The hardest part was choosing the final 3 looks. Do I go with all separates? Do I go with all dresses? Skirts? Pants? Mix it up? Struggle. But I feel that my final choices turned out pretty good. *Jay-Z voice* If I do so say so myself.

I hope to see you there! It'll be a beautiful, sunny, warm day. I know...I just checked.
